Rendez-vous de juillet

Jacques Becker was one of the best French directors to emerge after the occupation, combining the elevated realism of Jean Renoir (for whom he'd worked as an assistant) with a flair for black comedy and caricature. This was the second in a series of three films he made on the young people of the postwar era; it's set on the Left Bank (and actually filmed there), among the jitterbug clubs and smoky cafes of the emerging existentialist generation. With Nicole Courcel, Brigitte Auber, and Daniel Gelin; photographed by Claude Renoir (1949).
